Industry Partner Alliance

The Alliance will advise the Board of Directors on issues of importance and develop programs and services that increase the value of Industry Partner membership in SLA. The IPA will have between 15-20 industry partners (exhibitors and sponsors), appointed with staggered terms (1 year and 2 years). The IPA will meet virtually throughout the year and in-person at the Annual Conference each year. The goals of the IPA include, but are not limited to, the following:

a. To provide guidance and recommendations on how SLA can better utilize the content and resources produced by the industry partner community for its members.

b. To help develop programs and services that increase the value of SLA’s Industry Partner community.

c. To guide SLA on the marketing and communications targeted to industry partners.
